StarWars.com: The O-OT On DVD This September



Fans can look forward to a September filled with classic Star Wars nostalgia, led by the premiere of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy video game and the long-awaited DVD release of the original theatrical incarnations of the classic Star Wars trilogy.
In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie, as well as the original theatrical edition of the film. That means you'll be able to enjoy Star Wars as it first appeared in 1977, Empire in 1980, and Jedi in 1983.

See the title crawl to Star Wars before it was known as Episode IV; see the pioneering, if dated, motion control model work on the attack on the Death Star; groove to Lapti Nek or the Ewok Celebration song like you did when you were a kid; and yes, see Han Solo shoot first.

This release will only be available for a limited time: from September 12th to December 31st. International release will follow on or about the same day. Each original theatrical version will feature Dolby 2.0 Surround sound, close-captioning, and subtitles in English, French and Spanish for their U.S. release. International sound and subtitling vary by territory.

"Over the years, a truly countless number of fans have told us that they would love to see and own the original version that they remember experiencing in theaters," said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts and Senior Vice President of Lucasfilm Ltd. "We returned to the Lucasfilm Archives to search exhaustively for source material that could be presented on DVD. This is something that we're very excited to be able to give to fans in response to their continuing enthusiasm for Star Wars. Topping it off with a new interactive adventure makes September 12 a red-letter day for Star Wars fans."

We'll no longer need a Star Wars Preservation board, but this site won't be broken up over this.

What does not destroy us can only make us stronger!

Yipee! So I guess now is a good time to ask a question.

O-OT means "original-orignal trilogy" on DVD, right...?

Ever since I read this I keep seeing/hearing the final "new" sequence from the 97/04 Special Editions at the end of ROTJ. You know, the song that replaced "Yub Nub" where they show the statue of the Emperor being torn down on Corruscant and the Storm Trooper being mobbed. How appro-po...

According to Dante's "Inferno", the lowest layer of Hell is an icy wasteland where Satan resides. So I suppose if yo ulook at it that way, Hell is always frozen over.
